I get finasteride and cut it into fourth's. Yesterday I was in a rush so I only cut the finasteride in half and then one of the halves in half. I accidentally took one of the full halves today and forgot to cut it. Do I skip the dose tomorrow or do I just continue to take it normally? I hope I didn't screw anything up by taking 2.5MG of finasteride today.

Dude, calm down. NOTHING will happen.

I use Dr. Lees 15% *******-PLUS which has topical finasteride, on the days I use it I obviously take a lot more than 1mg of finasteride since it does absorb into the blood stream etc etc.

You really have nothing to be concerned about. Continue with your normal daily dose as soon as the 2.5mg day passes. Assume it was a normal dose. Just carry on.

Thanks man! This was my first screw up so I just wanted to be sure :P

How is your regimen going by the way? You have been on finasteride for how long now? I am closing in on the 2 month mark. I see a small difference, but not much. Hopefully I see more by month 3.

You have any before/current pics?

Remember, you're cutting up a 5mg pill. Men take that full dose without any problems.

This is true. Never even began to think about that :p

You’ll be fine! You can skip a day if it makes you fell better, but it will not matter either way.

Adam: I don't plan on posting before and after pictures on forums.

My hair is definitely improving. In 2-4 months from now I will show real benefit in my opinion. After a full year from now or so I should be able to see most/all of my potential gains.

My hair has definitely improved.
